Cape Town - Detained Cape Town professor Cyril Karabus’s legal situation in Abu Dhabi still hangs in the air after the attorney general failed to report to the judge yesterday, his lawyer Michael Bagraim said yesterday.

“The attorney general was supposed to give a report to the judge about whether or not they have managed to locate the missing original medical records. Based on that the judge was supposed to make a decision on whether Karabus’s (pictured) charges will be dismissed,” he said. “They didn’t show up in court and they have given no explanation.

I have now briefed our legal team in Abu Dhabi to go to court (today) to find out what’s going on.”

An emeritus professor at the University of Cape Town, Karabus, 77, has been detained in Abu Dhabi, on charges of manslaughter and falsifying documents, since August 18.
